Lado, that fall-ish yarn is great.  Love the texture

Lufah, Red Planet Blue is fantastic, kind of superman-ish.  Love the huge skein!

ignorantamoeba---great job on the dyeing and spinning.

LizzieMcGuire---I think it is wonderful and that scarf turned out great.  Smiley

nicolassa---Violetta is fanstastic....great colors!

Here is my one contribution this week:

Heartthrob, 235 yards of BFL, sport to worsted weight, 4oz.  Roving was from Spunky Eclectic in her Burning Embers colorway.  I love this colorway, it is so nice.

I also dyed up two new rovings yesterday:

Twilight, 4oz of merino

Samhain, 4oz of domestic wool blend

I just got new colors of dye in so I have been playing around with them, need to get some more going!  Smiley

Nice violet this week! I've longknitted a pink-and-violet sweater (during about 8 months) and slightly tired on it. But you all show such beautiful yarn that I am inspirated already to violet, me too. I prepared a big set of pink, violet and lilac dye for next Friday. Grin
Weddy_in_Paris: yes, that is machine embroidery viscose.
LizzieMcGuire : your yarn is very normal, congratulations!

I haven't had a camera since last year so I thought I'd post what's on my wheel right now since I got my camera back. I got this hot roving from cjcopecreations on Etsy. 100%Colonial wool (soooo dreammy soft). The colorway is called crayons. I am just spinning it as a single right now. As usual, eveyone's yarns are super awsome this week! Happy Fiber Friday!!

Fiber Friday is always so exciting ! I swear I'll be in next week, I have what I'll have and it won't matter if it is embarrassing (I got my wheel 2 days ago and I have to fix the treadle thing - I don't know the name in english but I am pretty you understand what I mean).
Thanks for the hhint Lado.
Nicolassa, I love your luchy acorn (violetta is sweet too).
Mandalinn, your pink and black is very nice. And I can't wait to see your Twillight roving spun !

All so pretty this week - lufah, I love the bright one and that must either be a jumbo skein or a tiny pumpkin.

I have been suffering from a lack of inspiration lately. I dyed up some pretties last week http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=199631.0 but have not been motivated to spin - hopefully I will have something to share next week.

Here is some BFL that I dyed last week. For some reason I was crazy and decided to pull out my spindle instead of spinning it on the wheel. This is going to take awhile. Wink

Astryd, that is gorgeous! I normally don't comment, but the warmth and colors in your roving (is it roving? I'm not a spinner, so I wouldn't know a roving from a batt or a top) is amazing, and the fact that you're doing it with a spindle is incredible. The finished yarn will be gorgeous! Shocked
